Natural Gas

Australia is the world’s fourth largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG). Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas, primarily methane, which has been cooled to minus 161°C to reach its liquid state.

Liquefying natural gas reduces the volume it occupies by more than 600 times, making it a practical size for storage and transportation in specifically designed and built tankers. LNG is widely recognised as a clean, safe and convenient form of energy, which can be readily supplied to distant markets. It is transported to dedicated LNG receiving terminals, which have the capacity to store and re-gasify the LNG for supply to markets. LNG, in its liquid state, is not flammable or explosive.
